Now this was a lovely spot.
The gray-furred wolf lounged on a rock overlooking the lake, head resting on his forelegs. He listened to the gentle, even trickle of the waterfall pouring into the lake, leaving a clear, empty patch of dark water among the forest of lily pads. Eyes closed, he let himself doze off.
Until, of course, he heard a splash. Slowly, dreamily, he opened one eye. A fish, perhaps? He’d noticed vivid orange carp darting beneath the surface now and then, accompanied by silvery trout and muted green gills. This would be an excellent spot to do some fishing, he thought. If only he could remember how…
Ugh. His stomach rumbled. He’d managed to forage and scavenge enough to get by, but this whole surviving day-to-day thing was really dragging him down. Was this what animals really did all day? Was this what he was doomed to think about for the rest of his life? What he was going to eat next, and nothing else?
Depressing. And boring.
His mood suddenly soured, Nemo sat up with a wide yawn. But when he looked back at the lakeshore, he realized he wasn’t alone. Company! At last. Interest glittered in his brown eyes.
“Come to ponder your sorrows by the water?” Nemo drawled, peering down at the stranger.
